Rick Perry Won't Back Away From Obama Border Conspiracy Theory
Huffington Post ^

Posted on 07/06/2014 4:59:37 PM PDT by TigerClaws

WASHINGTON -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is not backing away from a conspiracy theory he recently floated about the Obama administration somehow coordinating the surge of immigrants coming over the border for some unknown reason.

Perry recently suggested on Fox News that the Obama administration might be "in on this somehow" and helping move immigrants over the border. Asked about that statement on Sunday, Perry didn't back away.

"I have to believe that when you do not respond in any way, that you are either inept, or you have some ulterior motive of which you are functioning from," Perry said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday.

Hey Rick,

Point them to the fact that in JANUARY, months before the faux 'crisis' began, they were advertising to prepare for this:

Point them to the fact that Ol' Joe Biden did a 'wink wink nudge nudge' interview

http://sweetness-light.com/archive/biden-tells-central-americans-how-to-get-to-stay-in-us#.U7ni4KjXqbM

As for the motive, 65% of Hispanics are voting for Democrats. This is bringing in a voter base that'll change American politics forever within the decade.

Motive enough?

Zero has declared war on the American people and the criminal, disease ridden illegals are his foot soldiers.

But we’re not allowed to defend ourselves.

Its not really a ‘conspiracy theory’ if all of the facts support it.

a) Good on him for not wussing out and backing down.

b) What the hell is it with Texas governors and the English language?

How long and dangerous is Mexico…? These kids do that all by themselves?

No, the partners of the Obama Regime --narcoCartels-- help them.

As they aided in the machine-gun smuggling and subsequent bloody murder headlines.

Similar to the Bengazi "spontaneous protests".

Ever notice just HOW DEEP the connections are between this Regime and criminal entities….? Chris Rock said it best:

"I can't wait 'til his second term when he REALLY starts bustin' out with the serious gangsta sh*t..!"

“Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is not backing away from a conspiracy theory he recently floated about the Obama administration somehow coordinating the surge of immigrants coming over the border for some unknown reason.”

If ANYONE is as complicit as the president, it is Rick Perry, who made a career out of CODDLING ILLEGALS. Maybe Perry didn’t go to Central America and specifically invite them over - but THEY KNEW that Texas was about as FRIENDLY as any place in the world for them, and it was due to Perry and other Republican leaders here.

He should SHUT UP and LEARN from his stupidity.

Perry took the perfect approach - Obama is either inept or he is causing it - take your pick. Perry does not have to prove anything (likely happened via calls to Mexico President and evidence may not be discoverable).

The key is to put the other side on defense

Indeed. HuffPo and others are quick to use the term to minimize his influence — a Guilt By Association fallacy.

But we can leave that aside. How many long-time, almost crazy-sounding (to those not paying attention) “conspiracy theories” have become “conspiracy facts” in just the past year or two?:

- “the government is tapping all our phones and saving all our emails from a big building somewhere!”
- “a guy I know criticized the government, and now he’s being audited for the first time in his life!”
- “I heard the government is buying guns and giving them to Mexican drug dealers so American gun stores will get blamed!”

et al...

When I see a Huffington Post article on Yahoo, here’s what I do, regardless of its content.

First, hover to the top right of the title until you see a gray Y + X.

Then click the X. That will give you the opportunity to tell them why you don’t want to see this article. Since they don’t yet offer Huffington Post as a reason, I click “Done”.

I refuse to visit their site.

Bingo! The key to winning all political battles. Unfortunately Bonehead Boehner has no brain much less a strategy. If he had one—a brain—he would have a new attack line everyday, forcing the RATS to defend their position. But we are saddled with a feckless speaker, a political know nothing, waiting out the time to do no harm and hopefully regain the Senate. Reminds me of the feckless fool on the hill, but hey, what is a RHINO suppose to do?

Obama has a pattern.
1. It was reported before the Egyptian revolution US community organizer types were stirring up the MB.
2. It was reported that before the Libyan revolution US community organizer types were stirring up terrorist types there,
3. they have been active in Palestine and Algeria also. But Algeria overcame them
4. Now it seems they are at work in Central America.
Gov. Perry has it right.

Actually, the Great State of Texas has been trying, within the confines of FEDERAL REGULATIONS.

This problem is going to affect all states. Maybe all 50 governors and residents of those states should make a stand?

Perry ain’t perfect but he ain’t totally flawed.

Well said. Perry is complicit. His record of pandering to the ILLEGAL hordes has no doubt contributed to why they want to come there.

La Raza RIck said, "President Fox’s vision for an open border is a vision I embrace". I know the Perry faithful want to forget that but real conservatives never will.

Well, I’m not a Perrywinkle...he’s done both good and bad.

But I had to Google the “President Fox...open border” quote. I don’t remember it...but these days that means little, lol. Looks like he was talking about commerce between the countries. I don’t know that I think that uninspected trucks should come here, but that seems to be the subject. Not erasing the Texas/Mexico border.

Your home page doesn’t say where you hail from? How is your state dealing with illegal immigration? It is prevalent in all states.

I would respectfully disagree with you that Perry was speaking just about commerce and trucking. He advocated a bi-national healthcare system. And in that same speech he said this:

”We must say to every Texas child learning in a Texas classroom, we don’t care where you come from, but where you are going, and we are going to do everything we can to help you get there. And that vision must include the children of undocumented workers. That’s why Texas took the national lead in allowing such deserving young minds to attend a Texas college at a resident rate. Those young minds are a part of a new generation of leaders, the doors of higher education must be open to them."

I live on a sizable piece of property in East San Diego County about 10 miles from the US/Mexico border. Not long ago it was common to see ILLEGAL aliens traipsing through my property headed north. They would fill their water jugs with my hose and often left it running. Water here is scarce so it is expensive. They stole fruit from my trees. They broke into my garage and my shed. They tried hotwiring my vehicles and they accosted a neighbor woman with the goal of carjacking her truck. Who knows how that would have ended had she not been armed. All this ended for us with the construction of a new border fence. But that does not matter one spit to La Raza Rick and his supporters. He opposes a fence because he really does share a vision of an open border, not just for Mexican trucks, but for its people. And his supporters? Not long ago one Perrybot argued that border fences do not work. He provided "proof" of his claim by giving me a link to a pro-ILLEGAL alien website. It was a lame argument reflective of his hero’s lame position. Fences work. Perry’s vision of an open border never will.

Thank you for your measured reply.

Truthfully, the feds require that Americans educate illegal aliens. I don’t like it any more than you do. The “Dream Act” is ridiculous and we are for accepting it. But, I guess, if they pay in-state-tuition it is what it is. Perry didn’t do that all on his own. The state legislature brought it up and backed him. Since Texas has a huge Hispanic population..as politicians...I get it. Not all are illegal.

I regret that you had the illegal problem on your and neighbors property. I rejoice in the fact that a fence across the small part of the state stopped your problem.

But truthfully, the fencing problem along the Texas/Mexico border is far more problematic. Building a fence in the middle of a river is tough. And who is gonna pay for it, if it could happen? The Feds sure won’t.

No slam against Cali intended but you have plenty of “sanctuary cities” (as do we). The illegals are still invading your state (a they are ours)...they are just taking a different route. The only people I see standing up are in Murrietta. And if what I read is correct...that may stop.

Your state is much like mine. Large Hispanic voter base. And I don’t see that you have, or have had, a governor that will stop it. Correct me if I am wrong.

I just get a little tired of Texas, or the governor, being slammed for “not stopping it.”

When Cali stops their invasion...get back to me.

Not so sure Perry will take the financial hit from this without letting it first impact the nation entire so he doesn’t have to do the heavy financial lifting in his state alone. Cost money to send troops of any kind to the border....he may wait til the pressure is stronger on OB to send them at the gov. expense.

Perry’s been fighting for ‘limited’ border protection...I say this because he does not want the border ‘closed’ by any means.

If this is a conspiracy it's a pretty poorly kept secret.

0bamao has been threatening to do this if he didn't get an amnesty bill for the last six years. He knows he's not going to get one, so he's just declared an open border.

Not much of a conspiracy.

Of course, if you're a HuffPo reader, this all comes as something new to you.

“Truthfully, the feds require that Americans educate illegal aliens.”

I am aware of that. But the USSC also ruled that residency cannot be a determining factor in deciding who does and who does not qualify for instate tuition. Perry and other pro-ILLEGAL alien Texans found a way around that ruling by avoiding the issue of residency altogether and requiring instead that the ILLEGAL alien attended at least 3 years in a Texas high school. It was a way of circumventing the law and its result is clear; ILLEGAL aliens now qualify for and receive both instate tuition and financial aid that American citizens do not. Moreover, other states, including the Peoples’ Republik of Kalifornistan have followed suit. Thank you Rick Perry, you're such a leader!

I have heard all the arguments by those opposed to border fence and the presence of a river is by far not an insurmountable obstacle to it. Erect the fence on the Texas side of the river and that small obstacle is solved.

I just get a little tired of Texas, or the governor, being slammed for “not stopping it.” When Cali stops their invasion...get back to me.

To my knowledge no one in this state proclaiming to be a "Conservative" has or will be running for POTUS. So as tired as you may be of hearing criticisms of La Raza Rick, they are sure to continue as long as he: a) continues falsely presenting himself as a conservative and b) with his pro-ILLEGAL alien record continues trying to get elected to the highest office in the land.

Thank you for mentioning the PGR. As we say, there are a million things we would rather do but none more important.

It is very true. If your point was to highlight that the liberals in the state of Kalifornistan have followed Rick Perry's lead then you have attained your goal. If it was to point out that my state also gives handouts to ILLEGAL aliens, I already knew that. The difference is this state is run by self-described liberal democrats. What's Perry's excuse?

I wish someone could prove that not to be the case. But it is the case. Actions have consequences and his actions are thwarting America while assisting in it’s destruction at the hands of his no so former party.

His little helpers assist in it by running cover for him.

I have deflected nothing. I have no idea why you think California or its politicians are relevant to this discussion but I will answer your irrelevant question; absolutely nothing. But California is run by liberal democrats, I would expect nothing more than their unwavering support for ILLEGAL aliens. So I ask you again, why is it that when it comes to pandering to ILLEGAL aliens the record of Rick Perry matches that of California’s liberal democrats? Why is that question relevant? Because Rick Perry ran for president in 2012 and is likely to run again. His record is what matters, not that of any Californian who ISN’T running. Surely you get that.

Perry wants to be my president, thus, his pro-ILLEGAL alien record is the topic. So I answered your question, please answer mine. Why does a man who claims to be conservative have a record of pandering to ILLEGAL aliens that matches that of the liberal democrats running California?

btw…I am an engineer and I own a construction company that does a considerable amount of bidding for the state of California. But my job, my education, my qualifications and my certifications are irreverent to this discussion. Fences can be built next to a river and it doesn't require an engineering degree to understand that. As for cost, if you think the cost of such a project is too costly you apparently have no idea what we will pay for the ILLEGAL invaders who will be allowed to enter this country in its absence.
